In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Have you ever tried to shine light in a room that is already brightly lit. The light has little or no effect because light is already there. However, if you shine the smallest ray of light in a dark room you will see immediate results because light is at it's greatest function in darkness. Light is the opposite or opposing force of darkness. Light is always effective over darkness. Nothing dispels darkness like light.
The Bible tells us that God is Light and in Him there is no darkness at all. Jesus said, "Ye are the light of the world," he was talking about Christians. No matter how great the darkness maybe in a place or situation, light can always overcome it. Light is only effective against darkness when it is turned on. No matter how much light you have, if it is turned off or hidden darkness will continue prevail. The scriptures remind us to let our light shine before men, why, because the Light is the only power that can set men free. Jesus said, "I am the Light of the world."The world is hopeless without light because it is dark. If the world had no need of light, why would the body of Christ be here in the Earth. There is no other true light except that which comes from God. The Bible says that Satan transforms himself into an angel of light but this is not true light, it is fake. Fake or artificial light has no effect on darkness. It pretends to bear light fruit but in all actuality the fruit is dead. When you slice open his fruit it is rotten to the core, it looks good on the outside but the inside is corrupt just like it's source. However, remember the only way to see the corruptness in Satan's fake fruit is to have the light on because you can't see anything in darkness.
Let your light shine bright you are a true light-bearer ! Shine! Shine! Shine!
